DON'T BE DECEIVED!!! This is a fast food restaurant masquerading as fine dining. Precooked pasta that turned cold in 5 minutes, served less than 10 minutes after we sat down. The orechiette on the menu had no sauce listed and when asked, our genuinely attentive but ill-informed waitress said it was in 'olive oil.' Assuming al'olio, I was disgusted to find it was only in 'broth': doubtless the very water it was nuked in. My companion's tagliatelle was equally reheated and equally quickly cold. Our bill came to $57. for a meal that should have been priced at $25. We were in and out on a busy Friday night in 35 minutes! It takes only minutes to cook pasta freshly. We should have noticed that the busy and big bar had 2 bartenders while the tiny 'kitchen' had 3 cooks --- each working a microwave, it would seem. Fuhgedddabowdit!
